I did a Bridal vendor show last week and am not getting responses from ANY of the people who said they were interested in hosting a PC Bridal Shower/Registry and/or interested in being a consultant. I have contacted them by phone, email and now text message. Any tips??

Don't give up. Give them a few days, then contact them again. My wording is usually something like:

Hi, Rae here, the Pampered Chef Consultant from [recent bridal show]. Still trying to catch up with you to get that Pampered Chef Wedding Shower [or registry] set up. If you're busy, I understand. Be sure to get back with me as soon as possible so we can get the ball rolling. If life has changed and you're no longer interested, that's just fine. However, I need to hear that from you. Feel free to call or text me at [number].

When it comes to booking showers, don't be discouraged. Here are some things to keep in mind. First, brides don't host showers for themselves and it's bad etiquette for the bride to ask someone for a shower, therefore even though they might want a PC shower, they may need to wait until their friends, aunts, bridesmaids, co-workers (whoever is hosting the shower) brings up the topic. At that point, they can share that they would like a PC shower and give them your info. Your job is to be a resource to them, make sure they have your info and to touch base occasionally to keep your name on their mind. That said, if their wedding isn't for a few months to 1+ years away (which is typical of brides who attend bridal shows), you may need to be patient knowing that this is a topic that may not even be broached until the 3-6 months prior to their wedding date. On the drawing slips that I use at my bridal events, I always ask for their anticipated wedding date. You might just put them in a tickler file to touch base with the brides at about 4-6 months out (honestly, 6 is often too far out). You could email them indicating that you know that they are throwing their own shower and that if they have the name of someone for you to follow up with along with email and/or phone, you would be happy to contact that person directly.

As for a registry, I personally have little luck with those now that PC has suspended them and focus predominantly on showers. But, you could send her the wish list by email (the PDF from Consultant's Corner or the excel file that I am attaching) and encourage her to complete it and return it to you. Give her a link to your website and/or the catalog on your site and let her know that she can email/text/call you if she would like a paper catalog.

Just some thoughts.
